What is ABS CBN TV Plus

ABS CBN TV Plus is a digital television service that allows you to view channels in high-definition. It has over 40 free-to-air channels and comes with features like an electronic program guide (EPG) and parental control.

What Causes ABS CBN TV Plus to Have No Signal?

There can be a number of different reasons why your ABS CBN TV Plus is not receiving signal. It could be caused by a faulty antenna, incorrect settings on the device itself, or an issue with the broadcasting provider.

How do you fix an ABS CBN TV Plus that has no signal?

To fix your ABS CBN TV Plus, simply follow these steps:

1. Check the antenna

Make sure that the antenna is plugged in correctly and that it’s not damaged or obstructed. You may need to adjust its position or replace it if necessary.

2. Reset the device

Unplug your ABS CBN TV Plus from the power socket and wait for 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reset the device and may clear any issues with it.

3. Update the firmware

Check to see if there is a newer version of ABS CBN TV Plus’s firmware available, then download and install it on your device. This should help improve its performance and hopefully resolve any signal problems you’re experiencing.

4. Contact your provider

If your TV Plus is still not receiving any signal after trying all of these steps, then it may be due to a hardware issue.

In this case, you may need to contact ABS CBN’s customer service team for help or take your TV Plus into a local technician for repairs. They can diagnose the issue and recommend the best course of action.

Remember, after successfully troubleshooting and fixing an ABS CBN TV Plus that has no signal, it is always a good idea to regularly check your antenna connections and inspect the hardware for any signs of damage or wear. This will help ensure that your TV Plus remains up and running for many years to come.

We hope this guide has helped you fix your ABS CBN TV Plus that had no signal!

ABS-CBN Shutdown Update

ABS-CBN used to be the biggest TV company in the Philippines. On Thursday, it said it will sell its cable and broadband unit to PLDT, a big telecom company, for 6.75 billion pesos ($123 million).

Three years ago, ABS-CBN was shut down by the government when Rodrigo Duterte was president. Last year some of Duterte’s friends refused to let ABS-CBN keep running which worried people who care about freedom of speech. Its unit Sky Cable, which offers pay TV and broadband internet services, was spared from the closure.

ABS-CBN has been losing money since it closed. The company told the Philippine Stock Exchange that they will use the money from selling their shares to pay off what they owe.

ABS-CBN is selling its ownership in Sky so it can focus on making new shows. They are also showing their shows on Facebook and YouTube.

PLDT said that together with Sky, they will have more resources and be able to offer better services to their customers.

The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) took action in January to shift ABS-CBN’s channels to Advanced Media Broadcasting System, a network owned by Manuel Villar—the billionaire former Senate President and associate of Duterte. AMBS was established in September.

Are you having issues with your ABS-CBN TV Plus?

Are you getting ABS-CBN TV Plus No Signal message on your TV screen?

I know it’s frustrating, but don’t worry, I’ll share with you the steps to solve this problem.

What is ABS CBN TV Plus? 

ABS CBN TV Plus is what a lot of Filipinos use nowadays to watch TV program on various channels.

What’s good about the TV Plus is that you only need to pay once when you purchase the TV Box. After that, you don’t have to pay monthly TV subscription fee anymore.

TV Plus has helped us save hundreds to thousands of money because ever since we had it, we never had to pay ₱500 for our cable’s monthly bill. It was indeed a huge savings for us.

We’ve been using TV Plus for almost 5 years now and we’re happy with it.

We don’t watch TV that often, but when we do, the channels that are available are good and clear enough to let us watch the latest news and select TV programs.

Sometimes, we encounter issues with the TV Plus like having no signal, but it’s not a big deal because it’s very easy to fix.

In this article, I’ll share with you some of the issues that you might encounter with your TV Plus and the steps to fix it.

Issue 1: No Signal or Blank Screen

If your TV Plus shows No Signal or with just a blank screen, here are some steps on how to fix it.

Step 1

Check if the cable that connects your black box to your TV is plugged in properly.

Step 2

Turn on both your TV and the TV Plus black box.

Step 3

Using the remote of your TV, press the Source button.

Choose the cable that your TV plus black box is currently using. It can be AV, HDMI or any of the options under Input Source.

If one option doesn’t work, try another option until you see something on the screen.


Issue 2: No Kapamilya Channels

Step 1

Using your ABS-CBN TV Plus remote, press the MENU button.

Step 2

Select SETTINGS from the menu (highlighted in yellow below).


Step 3

Select INSTALLATION, then Factory Default.


Step 4

Enter the PASSWORD, which is 0000, then click YES to confirm reset.

Step 5

Go back to the INSTALLATION menu again, then select MANUAL SEARCH.

Set the FREQUENCY to 647143, then press the OK button to scan.

The missing channels should show up after doing Auto Search.

Error 48 or E48: No Signal 

If this error, E48: No Signal appears on your TV screen, just adjust your antenna and find the perfect spot that gives you the best or strong signal.

Error 16 or E16: Scrambled Channel

If this error, E16: Scrambled Channel appears on your TV screeen, switch the channel to ABS-CBN channel or to Sports and Action Channel. Wait for 20-30 minutes. After that, you may now switch the channel back to your desired or preferred channels.

If you can’t still watch exclusive channels on test broadcast like Cinemo, Yey, Knowledge Channel, DZMM Teleradyo, and KBO, you may send a text message to 23661.

If you still have issues with your ABS-CBN TV Plus after doing these steps, then you may contact the ABS-CBN TV Plus hotline:
